How to Make Nana Katie's Irish Soda Bread
- Grease two 8" round cake pans and preheat oven to 400
- Mix all ingredients in large bowl. Flour a large breadboard and place dough on board. Knead just a little, about 8 or 10 times. Cut dough in half.
- Form dough into a round shape and place in pans. Brush tooops with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar. I do not put a cross on tops, I leave them plain.
- Place in 400 degree oven for 15 minutes then turn oven too 350 and bake for 25 or 30 minutes. Remove from pans and wrap in tea towel to keep crust from getting too hard.
